Peter could have told people first

Published 25/11/2015

I still can't accept Peter Robinson told a newspaper - however reputable - that he was retiring and didn't do so in an address to his people.

A few sentences to praise our good qualities, reprove our foibles and finish with "How's about ye?"

I would suggest he also quote our "Ulster" poet John Hewitt, our "Irish" poet Seamus Heaney, or - better still - the words of "Scottish" poet Rabbie Burns:

We clamb the hill thegither;

And mony a cantie day, folk,

We've had wi' ane anither.
